Make calls in the air with AeroMobile
Stay connected via texts, email, the internet and calls in flight with our AeroMobile service. It's available on half of our fleet, with all aircraft based at Gatwick and selected aircraft at Heathrow and Manchester now connected.
The charges are almost the same as they would be if you were roaming from another country. The calls and texts will just be added to your mobile bill after you’ve flown. As long as your phone is activated for international roaming, you can use it to text, email, get online and make calls.
Best thing is, there isn’t any risk to the aircraft. This new technology means your phone connects to our network using its lowest settings. This takes away the problem of lots of different phones interfering with our onboard electronics.
